How Giant Jigsaws can improve Team Building
First and foremost, giant jigsaws provide an excellent opportunity for team members to work together towards a common goal. Completing a giant jigsaw requires a lot of communication, coordination, and collaboration between team members. Each person must work on their own section of the puzzle while keeping the big picture in mind, and they must communicate effectively to ensure that all the pieces fit together properly.
Giant jigsaws also provide a fun and engaging activity for team members. While many team building activities can feel forced or contrived, working on a giant jigsaw is a natural and enjoyable experience that most people will find engaging. The sense of accomplishment that comes from completing a large puzzle is also a great way to build morale and boost team spirit.
These interactive games are sure to help your teams communication skills in a fun, engaging way which doesn’t feel like work!
Tips for Completing your Puzzle
- Choose the right puzzle: When selecting a giant jigsaw puzzle, make sure to choose one that is appropriate for your team’s skill level and interests. A puzzle that is too easy or too difficult can be frustrating and may not provide the desired team building benefits.
- Set clear goals: Before starting the activity, make sure to set clear goals and expectations for the team. This will help keep everyone focused and motivated throughout the process.
- Encourage communication: Encourage team members to communicate openly and frequently throughout the activity. This will help ensure that everyone is on the same page and that any issues or concerns are addressed promptly.
- Celebrate success: When the puzzle is complete, take time to celebrate the team’s success. This can be as simple as taking a group photo with the completed puzzle or providing a small reward or recognition for the team’s hard work.
After your puzzles are completed, a great idea is to frame or display them on your office walls. It’s a fun and unique way to display your company’s logo or whatever image you decide to get printed on your giant puzzle! Maybe a slogan or picture of your building? Images of your best selling product? The list is endless, so be sure to get in touch to see how we can help!
In conclusion, using giant jigsaws for team building can be an effective and enjoyable way to improve communication, collaboration, and morale within your organization. By choosing the right puzzle, setting clear goals, encouraging communication, and celebrating success, you can make the most of this fun and engaging activity. So why not give it a try and see how it can benefit your team?
